In response to the Government’s statement in March 2020 advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including by not attending theatres, Calderdale Council took the precaution of closing the Victoria Theatre. We are still waiting for further advice from Central Government about when and how we will be able to safely re-open. The team continue to work behind the scenes to make sure the theatre will reopen quickly for you once we are able to do so.

Rita, Sue and Bob Too has been re-scheduled to October 2021 

We're pleased to confirm that your existing tickets will be valid at the rescheduled date and we hope you can join us. If you have chosen to collect your tickets from the Box Office at the time of booking, your tickets will still be available for collection up to the date of the rescheduled show.

If you are unable to attend, tickets for this event must be returned to the Box Office by 30 September 2020 for a refund – The Theatre and Box Office are currently closed and we are doing what we can from home to keep our customers informed. Once we return to work we will administer the refunds so please bear with us in this unprecedented situation.

If you have Victoria Theatre tickets bought from the Box Office and would like a refund - these will need to be returned to the Box Office for a refund (as this event has been postponed and to allow tickets to be resold).

If you have Print at Home Tickets and would like a refund  - Please return the original print at home email which included the link to the ticket pdf (with the subject line - Your print at home tickets are ready - PLEASE PRINT) to the Box Office at box.office@calderdale.gov.uk

If you have purchased tickets though a ticket agent (eg Ticketmaster, SEE tickets etc) or any other channel and would like a refund - you will need to contact the agent directly to discuss your booking and their terms and conditions and refund policy will apply.

PLEASE NOTE: The £1.75 Theatre Support Fee that is automatically added to all tickets is non refundable. This fee is essential to supporting the theatre operations, particularly during these difficult times and it will be used to help provide necessary equipment for the safety of our audiences once we re-open for shows.


Rita, Sue and Bob Too

Written by Andrea Dunbar

Rita, Sue and Bob Too is a twisted, dark and hilarious comedy drama that tells the story of Rita and Sue, two working class girls from a rundown council estate who are about to finish their final year at school. In their spare time, they earn money babysitting for married couple Bob and Michelle. Behind Michelle’s back, Bob embarks on an affair with both Rita and Sue, who take it in turns with him in his car in the countryside. It is only a matter of time before Michelle and Sue's parents finds out and when they do sparks most definitely fly! 

Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical work is a funny, touching and vibrant play, full of wicked humour and is a stark snapshot of 1980s northern working-class life, under an increasingly repressive Tory government. In 1986, the play was adapted into a film of the same name, and attracted a cult following due to its intimate portrayal of ordinary people’s lives

"Theatrical Powerhouse*" Diva Productions (Chicago, The Sound Of Music, The Full Monty and the sell out Rita, Sue and Bob Too (2017) are proud to be presenting this iconic production live on stage across Yorkshire.
